Thanks, I think. The first rule of having a hobby is not to be offended when a fictional character makes fun of it. Apparently the second rule is if it does happen, squee about it in at least three (3) internet communities.

:homsar: Gets my vote for "Non Sequitur Champion." Especially with the "thump" hat.

For a while I was scared that SBemails may have jumped the shark, but starting with environment my mind has changed. This is the third amazing SBemail in a row.

That being said, it was still a good email.

From what I can tell, the main arguments against it are:
1. "Most" of it is grammatically/literately unsound
2. Copyright
3. Owner permissions

My argument to that is:
1. Read moar better fanfics, or better yet, write a better one yourself
2. lol, internet (no but really, there are laws that cover fair use and such)
3. I always assumed if an author didn't want their fandom to generate fanfiction, he/she would state this somewhere. It seems impractical for them to expect to personally answer 500 fanfiction permission requests.

I almost feel like this topic of discussion could use its own thread. It has been brought up several times.

There are also the people who think that fanfiction is entirely porn and OOC romance. Which makes me wonder if they've ever seen a fanfiction archive, or if they just read half an article on crazy Draco/Hermione shippers in the newspaper. There's more to fanfiction than that.

It takes some work to find decent stories sometimes, that's the problem... especially for small fandoms. Harry Potter? Sure, they got directories for fanfics all over the place, but take anything small and you can go through a dozen stories and find only one worth reading in some cases. Naturally people who took five seconds to look and see what it is are going to get turned off by all the inexperienced writers. It can be daunting to have to dig through stuff you don't like, but I find it worthwhile in the end.

Location: the computer... yeah, still!
gotta give s-s a hand for openly and shamelessly admitting to writing slash fics about his own brother, it's probably a very satisfying form of revenge. :mrgreen:
yeah this email kicked butt i lmao'd the whole time.
it's so great how strong bad will explore any topic, especially fan stuffs. though i do hope tcb hasn't seen anything "my kind of people" have posted ;)

also @ checkot
yeah i can imagine that's how he'd write it.

lol Honestly, I enjoy fan fiction. There are actually a few good ones out there.

However, some of it can be pretty lame, as :sb: pointed out all through the email.
